Housing Equity and Resilience in Greater Boston's Post-COVID Economy

The Boston Foundation presents the third installment in a series of Greater Boston Housing Report Card research briefs, which will look at the economic recovery and the future of housing in Greater Boston. Absent intervention, the COVID-19 pandemic could have tragic, irreparable consequences for the low-income housing market in the region and across the nation. Many of the interventions being undertaken by cities and states seek to even out these imbalances. This creates an emergent opportunity to learn if, how, and to what degree such policies are effective, providing the basis for redesigning the low-income housing market to be more equitable and, in turn, more resilient to such crises.

As with other webinars in the series, the research and analysis presented here will inform policy makers, advocates and the development community on the challenges of our housing situation and how they disproportionately burden lower income households of color. Please join this important conversation.

The first webinar in the series on Housing Stability was held on June 23rd. The second in the series on Racial Equity in Housing was held on July 14th. Please click the links for recaps and videos of those events.
